Lisa Marie Presley, known as the child of singer and actor Elvis Presley, has died. She was 54 years old. 

"It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us," her mother Priscilla Presley said in a statement Thursday evening. "She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known."

Sources told TMZ that Presley was pronounced dead at a Los Angeles area hospital. 

News of Presley's hospitalization was first reported by the outlet Thursday morning. Her mother later confirmed the news on social media platforms that she was in the hospital.

"My beloved daughter Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital," Priscilla Presley wrote in a statement. "She is now receiving the best care. Please keep her and our family in your prayers. We feel the prayers from around the world, and ask for privacy during this time."

Los Angeles County paramedics were dispatched to a Calabasas home at 10:37 a.m. following a report of a woman in full cardiac arrest, according to Craig Little, a spokesperson for the county’s fire department. Property records indicate Presley is a resident at that address.

Paramedics arrived about six minutes later, Little said. A subsequent statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said paramedics performed CPR and "determined the patient had signs of life" before taking her to the hospital immediately.

According to TMZ’s sources, paramedics were able to regain a pulse before she was transported to the hospital, adding that someone administered epinephrine at the scene in order to help Presley regain a pulse.

A source with direct knowledge also told the outlet it was Presley’s housekeeper who found her unresponsive in her bedroom. At about the same time, Lisa's ex-husband, Danny Keough, got home from taking the kids to school and performed CPR until paramedics arrived. Danny and Lisa have been living together, according to the outlet.
